Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo, furnished with everything you might need. Views from the balcony were great. We saw feeding ospreys and spoonbills in addition to great sunsets. The location is convenient to restaurants and sight seeing.

Spectacular Direct Oceanfront Property! Outstanding Southwest Sunset Views!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived a week after Hurricane Irma, and found the condo survived well. The view was spectacular and we enjoyed the views from every spot in the condo, but mostly enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the dolphins swim by several times a day. We saw an abundance of coastal wildlife and just enjoyed the peaceful natural beauty of this spot. We walked up and down the shore for several miles along the beach. There was still a wide beach after the storm and the storm brought an abundance of beautiful seashells to collect. It is truly a great location.The place is well appointed and has been recently remodeled. It has chairs umbrellas and noodles for the beach. It was a great relaxing stay. We will be back! Herman was great and made sure we were enjoying our stay and had what we needed.

Oceanfront at its best!

  • 4 of 5

To think that just one short week ago I was standing on the balcony of Herman's condo witnessing the most beautiful sunset I've ever seen and now praying that this wonderful condominium community will still be intact as hurricane Irma arrives, is simply surreal. We loved our stay.....the view is a 15 on a scale of 10! Herman has the condo equipped with most anything that one could need to enjoy a beach vacations....beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and noodles. This is a great place for a couple to getaway and enjoy tennis, swimming and beach activities. A coupe of things to note....the list of amenities shows a dishwasher and there is none; and the washer/dryer is a community one down on the first floor. Praying for you all in Ft. Myers Beach!

Couldn't get any better!

  • 5 of 5

The moment you walk through the door, you have that relaxing beach feeling. The furnishings and color scheme help set the vacation mood. The view is awesome from the lanai whether it is during the day or sunset. I was worried about being on the 6th floor due to using an elevator but it came quickly and we usually were the only ones in it. The beach is so nice!! Not crowded; with plenty of birds and sea life to watch. perfect place to walk the beach whether you head south to the quiet end (plenty of shells) or north where there is lots of action (renting jet skis, parasailing, dolphin tours). Herman is great to work with and cares . We are disappointed that we will not be able to rent this condo next spring break due to the renters ahead of us wanting it longer. Can't blame them...

This condo is a dream come true

  • 5 of 5

You can't have a better time when stay in this beautiful condo. The furniture and decorations make you feel right at home at this beach front unit. Just sitting on the balcony in the morning with a cup of coffee watching the birds, dolpins and people started our day. Down to the beach in two minutes with sugar white sand and calm rolling waves touching our toes made the afternoon go so fast. Then we had dinner on the balcony with a glass of wine watching the sun sink into the Gulf of Mexico. It doesn't get any better than this.

Herman was great to work with and even check on us when we arrived to make sure everything was okay. I forgot to tell you that the pool is heated to 87 degrees. We will be back very soon!
